Reply
He is a kind person and I love the new smiling picture he is using now. I was only his baby sitter many many years ago - now am a patient in a home hospice and he has responded to my phone calls and also sent a beautiful card to cheer me up. Thank you, Dr. Rick. Sending you a hug - Velta Beimanis
